Naples Modern Farmhouse Honors Openness

Modern Flair Blends With Old Fashioned Comfort To Strike A Perfect Balance In This Fresh Farmhouse Design With An Edge

84

Set amid acres of indigenous tropical greenery, rolling pathways for walking and biking, and golf courses in Naples’ exclusive Estuary at Grey Oaks community, this home’s lush surroundings provided all the inspiration interior designer Jessica Lee needed. “This house was a lot of fun to design,” Lee says. “We always have a little more freedom designing a spec home rather than a private client’s home.”

Accordingly, a neutral color palette with accents of gray and mint green seems well-suited to the home. To increase the homey albeit clean feel of the single-story residence, wide-plank, white oak flooring flows throughout the main social areas. For cohesiveness in the spacious 6,027-square-foot, open-concept home, Lee repeated a faux, louvered wood detail in the foyer, great room, dining area and kitchen.

An ever-present romantic vibe begins in the foyer as guests are greeted with White on Gray by artist Sara Brown on one side and beckoned beyond by a glass-enclosed wine room on the other. A warm hearthside setting invites conversation in the great room, where a velvet and linen chaise divides the generously sized seating area into two social groupings. “Because there are two seating groups in the space, we felt that a pair of chandeliers was appropriate,” Lee says.

Nearby, columns sheathed with tongue-and-groove planks of ripped oak delineate the formal dining area. “Once the space was defined, it became a very intimate setting,” Lee says. In keeping, a crystal-drop candelabra chandelier softly shimmers above the stained walnut wood dining table.

The home’s comfortable farmhouse style merged with modern updates is most evident in the kitchen. For a twist, Lee styled a focal point with a wood, iron and glass hood. White custom cabinetry flows from the kitchen into the adjacent family room to provide ample storage for games and media equipment. “With a 15-foot pitch in the ceiling, I was able to add an impressive chandelier featuring modern lines and little glass shades that shine like stars,” the designer says. Pocket glass doors slide open to invite the outdoors into the home.

Created to be a sanctuary, the master suite takes up one full wing of the house. The romantic bedroom features a custom coffered ceiling with floating dark wood beams. White linen draperies soften the intimate space, while French doors step out to a private garden patio. The equally sumptuous master bath features opposing his-and-hers white oak and quartzite waterfall vanities, alabaster lights, and limestone flooring polished to a high sheen.

As inviting outside as it is indoors, this modern home with a fresh farmhouse edge makes the most of its enviable lifestyle on the Gulf Coast.
